"Zombie Birthday Cake actually started off as a funny thought between two guys (Ray Fix and Johnathan Godbolt) who wanted to make an "old school" sidescrolling action game about zombies - think Resident Evil mixed with the original Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden series. We wanted it to be pretty violent, as action packed as a 2D title could be, and have our friends in it as both main and supporting characters. Sadly though, a year and a half into production, the game went on...

Hot Dog City is another in-progress game from Ray Fix and Johnathan Godbolt which unfortunately met with the same fate as Zombie Birthday Cake. However, the soundtrack written by NESMETAL was too good to remain unheard, so here it is! Featuring a hot dog as the main character, the game was to be a fun, old-school style sidescroller, and much musical inspiration was taken from Ristar, Popful Mail and especially Sonic the Hedgehog. "The bass lines in the old Sonic soundtracks have always...

Enthralled is an EP of two halves; the first sees NESMETAL experiment with new musical elements and ideas over the triptych of Ut Filiolus Palma, Labyrinth and The Risk, while the second is comprised of four rarities from various compilations and projects. But the real genius here lies in the first three tracks, where the addition of vocals and live guitar has pushed the NESMETAL sound to even further extremes in the pursuit and exploration of 8-bit inspired metal. Lyrics for Labyrinth and The...

The prolific NESMETAL returns with his 4th release on Pterodactyl Squad, this his most dark and brooding work to date - Void. Inspired by the release of the retro-styled Mega Man 9 one year ago, NESMETAL decided to go back to basics, using simpler textures and rhythms to take his sound in a new direction. But fear not, the heavy metal themes and complex song structures still remain, making this release another truly interesting and original chapter in the tale of NESMETAL.

On Through The Mirror NESMETAL is more lean and mean than ever before, combining powerful, hard-hitting instrumentation with deeply layered songwriting - this EP is essential listening for fans of 8-bit music from the heavy end of the spectrum. Final track, Just For Now also offers a look forward to NESMETAL's next release. Step through the mirror. Don't look back now.

In the first of 3 releases, NESMETAL presents the opening chapter of the soundtrack to Ordimary Nan, a faux RPG game, much in the vein of the Final Fantasy series.

"Dead Lights and Dark Towers is a concept album of sorts detailing my journey into brokenness. Fear and hopelessness. Doubt. Bitter vengeance and despair, and my discovery of just how deeply rooted into my being those things had become over more than a decade. However, it is also a testament to an unrelenting Love, that was (and is still), always patiently waiting. Always searching me out. Even through the depths of my own darkness, always loving me. We all carry some kind of brokenness...

"This is the serious time..." Disc 2 picks up right after the Ninja Wizard has thrown Reddy from the top of an under-construction skyscraper. Now joined by Eggret, Franklyn makes the rest of his journey across Hot Dog City to stop the diabolical Mustardo. However, the closer they get, the more desperate and out of control the situation becomes. Will they survive long enough to see to it that Mustardo is destroyed?

"I've always loved Yuzo Koshiro's work on the Streets of Rage series (as well as the games themselves) and thought it would be fun to make my own soundtrack for a scrolling beat 'em up. So 10 years after Franklyn journeyed to Hot Dog City, I decided to throw him and his two friends, Reddy and Eggret into a city-wide brawl in an effort to stop Mayor Helmen (who is really the diabolical Mustardo) from destroying their beloved city." Disc 2 coming soon...
